I have well differentiated thyroid cancer. I think that means papillary or follicular?

Well Differentiated is one or the other. Did you have Radiation Iodine ablation yet? Poorly Differentiated is a progression from Well Diff. to Anaplastic. Thanks for the reply.

I had pap with a follicular varient so no help here. But have you checked out thyca.org? There's also a support group on myspace for thyroid cancer. There are a lot of threads and I think there was someone on there with anaplastic a little while back. Maybe you can find some info on there. I hope so. Good luck to you.

I had TT on march 9. Doctor says I am done. My carcinoma was only 8mm so she said I didn't need RIA or scan. Sounds a little odd but I'm ok with it.

Look at my comment under "Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer." It is poorly differentiated.
